Vertex Oxygen Saturation Technology

Oxygen Saturation Technology (OST)

The patent-pending oxygenation system is based on side-stream saturation technology

Vertex Aquatic Solutions has spent the last several years developing an innovative technology that would bring new ways and enhanced solutions to our customers. Our Oxygenation Saturation Technology (OST) is a breakthrough technology that is going to change the way we manage anoxia and improve lake water quality drastically. Oxygenation Saturation Technology (OST) eliminates lake anoxia while preserving stratification. The side-stream saturation technology manages anoxia by pumping low dissolved oxygen (DO) water from a lake, canal or lagoon, saturate it with oxygen and return the water.

A ubiquitous characteristic of eutrophic lakes and reservoirs is oxygen demand in the bottom waters that exceeds available oxygen stored in the bottom waters during stratification. As a result, bottom waters remain anoxic for a significant portion of the year leading to nutrient recycling, harmful algae blooms, habitat loss, fish kills, odors and decline in water clarity. This method of OST of adding oxygen is quantifiable, allowing for any specified concentration of dissolved oxygen to be maintained based on water depth, temperature, and salinity.

Vertex, a provider of the highest quality of pond and lake products, focuses on bringing to market products that are environmentally sustainable, that enhance aquatic ecosystems and reduce chemical use. With earth-friendly focus, Vertex treats many types of water challenges.

“Vertex is excited to launch the release of the Oxygen Saturation Technology,” said Patrick Goodwin, Aquatic Resource Scientist for Vertex Aquatic Solutions. “This breakthrough technology is going to change the way we manage anoxia and improve lake water quality drastically.”

This system is a fraction of the price of traditional oxygen saturation systems but still maintains the quality of materials and deliverables. The new patented Vertex OST is equipped with a water pump specified for either freshwater or saltwater, oxygen dissolution chambers, bubble capturing system (BCS) to off gas unwanted nitrogen, and plumbing. The system has been designed to deliver the full capacity of oxygen generated at the lowest possible electrical cost. This high oxygen water is injected via an energy-dissipating header (EDH) into the bottom waters of a lake or canal, where it will move through natural dispersion throughout the entire density layer. Injected oxygen behaves like coloring dye where it moves throughout the density layer shortly after injection. There are no bubbles made and no mixing to disturb bottom sediments or compromise the natural thermal structure of a lake. This system allows the oxygen concentration in water and, more importantly, at the sediment interface to be far greater than what traditional aeration could provide, making it the best oxygenation system on the market.
